OREANDA-NEWS The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said on Sputnik radio that the unspoken goal of the United States lately is the European Union, which has been actively developing lately and has already expressed a desire to build a united Europe. According to her, the European Union managed to get rid of the mentality of wars, replacing it with integration logic, and the competition of the euro with the dollar poses a direct threat to the ambitious plans of the United States.

"The United States of America has declared a 'crusade' against Russia and China, but behind the scenes one of their goals is, of course, the European Union, which has gained fantastic pace of development over the past decades," Zakharova stressed.

Earlier, analysts at the Chinese edition of Global Times compared the United States to a dying vampire, which is coordinating with its allied countries to “demonize” Russia in search of “new blood” and keep a weakening global influence. In their opinion, the US loses global control when independent countries strengthen their positions and cease to need American patronage. For this reason, Washington is forced to push states into the Cold War in order to maintain its authority.
